Though much of his early work was in Catholic liturgical music much of his latest work incorporates styles and sacred texts from a wide variety of cultures and spiritual traditions. He earned a masters degree in theology from St. John Seminary in Camarillo, California, and has spent a considerable amount of time studying both Eastern and Western spirituality, particularly under the influence of Bede Griffiths. After monastic formation and ten years living at New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, California, he re-located near Santa Cruz, California, and currently spends about half of his time on the road performing concerts, and teaching or leading retreats mainly  ( Wikipedia article )
